Shop Around Vintage style card

Yep I'm attempting a challenge.  The images are from the Shop Around jumbo wheel from Stampin' Up!  I've punched out different parts of the images and distressed the edges.  The ink is Baked Brown Sugar, but I highlighted the image of the lady.  I stained the White Tea Lace doily to give a vintage look.  The roses are cut out of felt using the Spiral Flower die.  The base card is Naturals Ivory cardstock.  Accessorised with pearls and Linen Thread.  


Tag a Bag and Simple Stems

A Tag a Bag Gift bag was decorated for this Simple Stems collection of cards.  Predominately the cards are stamped with the flower from Simple Stems using inkpads: Island Indigo, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.  I wanted to reproduce a colour system I had seen in a shop over the last few days - yellow, blue and green in fresh colours. I used a black marker to highlight the stamen in each flower.  Framelits - Banner and Window Collection were used.

So Very Grateful

So happy how this card evolved from a few homeless pieces on my table.  The main stamp set used is So Very Grateful:

I used Pool Party and Crumb Cake Ink for the base of the card as they are soft colours.  I stamped half the card with the background stamp En Francis and also Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto Very Vanilla cardstock.   Baked Brown sugar ink was used to stamp the So Very Grateful stamp on the Pool party and Very Vanilla cardstock and then punched out using the Decorative label punch.  A little Linen thread and large pearl also added interest to finish.

Eggstra Spectacular Fun

Easter is so fast approaching and the school holidays will start and lots of public holidays!  Just need good weather for everyone to enjoy.

I've used the Eggstra Spectacular stamp set on small tags attached to the Easter baskets which are really cute.  This time I've made a card using the In colors markers and card stock punched out using the Petite Petals punch.  The bunny's tail is fluffy and white using the Chalk marker.  Also from the Occasions catalogue is the Banner framelits and Silver Twine.
